Snakes are one of the scariest creatures on the planet. However, their unique and amazing abilities often make them fascinating creatures. Although their bite can be deadly, some people are still not afraid of reptiles. Now, a video demonstrating the same thing is going viral on social media. The video shows a young boy fearlessly handling a gigantic king cobra, which is one of the most venomous snakes in the world.
The video, which is amazing and terrifying at the same time, was shared on Twitter by user Subhash Chandra NS. It shows a boy, apparently unafraid of snakes, grasping the cobra by the tail.
Look the following video:
Chandra shared the clip just two days ago and it has since racked up nearly 4,000 likes. The clip garnered mixed reactions from Twitter users. While some expressed their concern, others called for the child’s parents to be recorded.
“Very dangerous… He is also one of the fastest and could have turned and bit in a second… Who is the snake rescuer here with him???” wrote a user. “The king cobra is probably 3X 6 years as tall as Viraj,” another commented.
A third said: “The stupidest thing to do… Whoever allowed this should be jailed.” “Some kind of joke? Who trained him to do this? Is he mature enough to handle it?” questioned another.
Meanwhile, the king cobra is one of the most venomous snakes and one of the longest venomous reptiles. An adult king cobra can be 10 to 12 feet long and weigh up to 20 pounds (9 kg). According to National Geographic, they can literally “stand up” and look an adult person in the eye. The amount of neurotoxin they can release in a single bite is enough to kill 20 people.
